Saturday I went to a local train show for the fun of the event and to buy some small and cheap Lionel cars. I picked up 6 little 4 wheel gondolas that are Lionel #9030 at $1 each. A Lionel 9016 yellow C&O hopper car for $2. A Lionel blue Republic Steel gondola for $3. Last but not least an older gentleman saw me looking at his Lionel #6005 Clinchfield GP38 and he said its yours for $25. It has dual motors and he said he tested it and it runs. I thought about it for a minute and he nicely said he just wanted to get rid of it. So I got it for $25. New this engine was at least $225 if not more. I think I'm going to paint it but I have not decided whether to paint it Duluth Missabbe &Iron Range brown and yellow or Dakota Minnesota & Eastern blue and yellow. I will post pictures of it monday.
